Block walls are versatile and can be used for a range of applications. Here are some ideas:
Planting GardensPlanning is a crucial aspect of garden installations, and it is essential to define the spaces well. You need to ensure that the gardens have proper boundaries of the correct heights. The retaining wall height aspect is crucial, as you will need walls that protect the flowering plants without obstructing the view.
Property BordersAll property owners want their premises to be safe and secure while being attractive. The best way to achieve these objectives is to install well-planned retaining walls as property borders. You can select everything from the height and thickness of these walls to the retaining wall systems to be used. Choose from a wide range of materials, including natural stone, concrete masonry blocks, brick, wood, etc. You can also use combination materials based on your needs.
Terracing SlopesTerraced land looks fantastic and provides a unique landscaping opportunity. However, these types of outdoor spaces have problems like soil erosion. Mudslides are common in these sites, affecting the land's stability, proving a safety risk. Installing retaining walls on terracing slopes can help maintain the structure while providing necessary support.
Water ContainmentSloping outdoor spaces need special grading and water containment features. Retaining walls are a great solution in these settings and must be planned well. You can discuss your requirements with the hardscaping designers who will survey the outdoor areas and provide the perfect retaining walls for water containment purposes. These walls are ideal for areas that experience flooding. Sloping land also creates problems like excessive runoff, and retaining walls solve the problem as they can help contain and direct water to the required drains.
Growing VegetablesIf you like gardening, you will want to have well-segregated vegetable garden spaces without any visual obstructions. Two feet high, retaining walls can serve this purpose well. You can opt for concrete masonry block walls and use natural stone veneer to clad them. Skilled hardscaping professionals will work with you to create suitable structures to grow your vegetables without worrying about pets digging into the soil or people trampling on the saplings.
